Sunglass Style

As the days heat up, you won’t want to leave home without your sunglasses—not only for protection from harmful UV rays, but to complete your warm-weather look. This season brings us a variety of trends in eyewear, whether it be shape, color, materials or accents. —

Look for a softer, delicately-curved shape from Marc by Marc Jacobs and Kate Spade.
Go retro with fresh looks inspired by the past from Dior, Valentino, Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs. Aviators by Carrera, Gucci, YSL and Dior Homme make a high-flying statement with their metal teardrop shapes.
Color palettes this season are sensuous—think burgundy, royal plums, deep fuchsias and vibrant reds as well as softer blush and nude tones from Jimmy Choo, Gucci and Juicy Couture. Animal patterned glasses from YSL, Kate Spade and Jimmy Choo are all the rage. Embellishments like Swarovski crystals, pearls and 18K logos by Dior, Valentino, Gucci, YSL and Jimmy Choo will glam up your look. Visit one of the various Solstice Sunglass Boutiques for a complete selection of the hottest design trends in sunglasses from some of the top designers. Here’s the best part: Solstice is giving away two lucky “Joy of Shopping” readers a $100 gift certificate! Just write to me at jsherwood@manhattanmedia.com and tell me why you need an updated look for your eyes this season.
